Please state your 'I Lived In NYC' credentials:

I moved to Manhattan in 2004 to attend Columbia. After graduating, I lived mostly in Harlem (East Village for six months before I was unceremoniously priced out). I worked in publishing (David Black, Penguin), modeled for Derek Haffar as a model-in-residence at the Museum of Art and Design, and worked at various underground parties in Brooklyn (Brooklyn Zoo, Tsunami Bass Experience, Castle V, Reconstrvct).

Hmmm...just to be sure, please tell us what 'Zabars' is:

It's a fancy ass grocery store/kitchen supply store with delicious yet overpriced food and some gadgets which no one has ever needed or ever will need.

OK, fine. When did you come out here? Why?

Hi! I'm a native Long Islander who then lived in Manhattan for about a decade before finally coming out West.
